Should I (And how do I) Overclock my AMD FX 6300?

I just completed my first custom build recently and was considering overclocking my system but I am not sure it is worth it or viable.

My system is as follows:

Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-S2P AM3+ AMD 760G Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

CPU: AMD FX-6300

Heatsink: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO

RAM: 8 GB Ballstix

GPU: Nvidia GeForce GT 630

It's not much, but it was affordable and runs what i need it to.

If someone could give me instructions on HOW to overclock i would appreciate it, and if my build isn't viable then that's fine, just let me know.

With the gt630 you probably wont gain a great deal by o/c. If you want to check out settings others have used, try this thread.

Just take small steps, run monitoring software to keep an eye on temps, and do stability testing.
